This school has made an enormous difference in my son's performance! My only regret is that I didn't find it sooner! The teachers and staff are mainly comprised of licensed psychologists and have had extensive training in what the best educational strategies for these students are and how to handle things if a conflicting situation arises.I also like that the middle and high-schoolers always stay in the same classroom and have the same teachers, and it's small,almost homelike intimate feel.For anyone who has a child with Autism,down's syndrome or other learning or devlopmental disability,I would strongly recommend this school!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
